Instruction and assessment in selection, critical functions, fault analysis and safety aspects of low voltage electrical distribution installations. The aim of this course is to raise the standard of knowledge and skill amongst learners concerned with the design, installation or maintenance of low voltage electrical distribution and power switching component systems, including modern ‘cutting edge’ technology and engineering ‘codes of practice’.

Target Audience:

 This course is designed to suit Systems Integrators, Consulting Engineers, End Users or anyone designing or maintaining electrical distribution in the electrical industry


 You will need a background in the basics of general electrical principles It is also recommended that students bring calculators and laptops without administrator rights
